Somerset flower farmer and florist Georgie will take you through the best way to sow hardy annuals to give you a great early crop next year.
What compost to use, how many seeds to sow, how to prick out and pot on, how and why sowing seed in the autumn for spring planting is very different from sowing in the spring for summer flowers are questions that will all be covered.
Georgie will tell you her preferred suppliers for seed, and compost, and give you great tips for keeping your seedlings happy through even quite a tough winter.
This roughly two hour session takes place on zoom and will include plenty of time for questions and costs £95 per person. There will be a maximum of fifteen students taking part.
Participants will receive a link to a recording of the session afterwards, as well as notes on what seeds were sown and all the tips for pricking out, potting on, and good suppliers.

Most of our flowers and foliage are grown on our flower farm in Somerset. During some of the winter months we order flowers from our flower farming friends in other parts of the country. We only ever use British grown flowers. Our flowers are cut from the farm fresh each morning, before being arranged and sent for next day delivery.
Because our flowers are picked fresh each day, each of our bouquets is totally unique. Although we can't guarantee a particular flower or colour scheme in your bouquet please let us know if you have any particular requests and we will do our best to meet them. We promise that your bouquet will be fresh and beautiful.
